Well it’s been quite a while, but have just bought a 1999 Mk2 SE and am looking forward to being back in the fold.
Had been looking on and off for a while - the first brand new car I bought myself back in 1999 was an SE and a couple of years ago that very car came up for sale - went to see it and wish I hadn’t - it was it terrible condition. (V720FHR - where are you now??)
Anyway, one popped up on ebay last week, not too far away, only 86000 miles, cat N but decent repair - a cheeky last minute bid and bob’s your aunt. Picking it up tomorrow so wish me luck
Quite enjoying reliving these cars - also have a Mk1 TT 225 Coupe that I’ve been getting back to OEM - it’s all like giant lego And they are getting used more than the modern stuff we have…
This may not stay OEM though; use it this summer then spend some time subtly improving it for track work next year
